look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brownish black with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of tan head which recedes into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.
Smell: A very roasty and rich stout aroma with big hints of coffee beans and dark chocolate. Dark roasted barley malts with a big presence of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, cream, lactose, burnt caramel, toffee, toast, and biscuit. Also some hints of grains, oatmeal, and nuts along with some brown sugar and molasses. Subtle undertones of dark fruit with some hints of raisin, plum, and dark cherry. Hops are very subdued. A pretty good coffee stout aroma.
Taste: Like the nose hints at, a rich and roasty dark stout taste with a big presence of coffee beans and sweet chocolate. Rich dark roasted malts with big upfront notes of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, cream, milk, lactose, toasted bread, burnt caramel, toffee, and biscuit. Some notes of oatmeal, nuts, grains, and a little smoke. Sweet notes of molasses and brown sugar. Dark fruit undertones of plum, raisin, and dark cherries. Slight earthy hop presence towards the finish. A very good taste.
Mouthfeel: Body is on the fuller side of medium. Carbonation is moderate. Very creamy and silky smooth. Slightly syrupy. Alcohol is masked well.
Overall: A very good imperial coffee stout. Good roast coffee and sweet chocolate flavors with a nice oat like bready presence.

Thanks yet again to Andrew for the bottle.
Pours jet black, ring of off white head, no lace to speak of. Smell is of coffe and roast, chocolate both of the milk and dark variety, not a lot more going on but still a seemless blend of coffee, roast and chocolate. Taste is of coffee and roast, faint bit of char, chocolate, moderate bitterness throughout coming from both chocolate and hops, ashy/char/roast aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, medium full body. A great coffee stout that should be held in the same regard as Peche Mortel and FBS, something I would very much like to revisit again.
